Over the years many bands have had various alter egos as they have changed name and merged, split or disbanded for various reasons. This page serves to record information about those changes in outline and to provide some element of a genealogical or family tree view of brass bands.

The dates indicated are when the bands were formed. In some cases, where there was an earlier band prior to conversion to an all-brass band, the date of the conversion is used. Any further details, corrections or suggestions of "family tree" relationships between bands and their names will be most welcome.

Footscray-Yarraville City Band1961 [Australia] - Melbourne, Australia. 1883 the Belgravia Brass Band was formed, later to become the Footscray Temperance Brass Band. The suburb of Yarraville founded its own band in 1888, and is the first vital link to the present FYCB. Another band, the Yarraville Amateur Brass Band, also existed during this period. Both bands drew funding from the local community until around 1895 when the depression caused them to close. By 1902 economic conditions within Footscray began improving and community pressure revived banding in the area, resulting in the formation of the Footscray Municipal Band which later became the Footscray Municipal Military Band. Other bands also in the area were the Yarraville Citizens Brass Band (1910) and the Kingsville Brass Band (1914). By 1921 the YCBB and the KBB amalgamated to form Kingsville-Yarraville Citizens Band. In 1961 the Footscray City Band and the Kingsville-Yarraville Citizens Band began a new era by merging to form the present Footscray-Yarraville City Band
